Student Spotlight: Madelaine McCowan with Big Brothers, Big Sisters

If you were to sum up your placement in one tagline/movie quote/song title, what would it be?

“How can we achieve a certain kind of compassion that can stand in awe at what people have to carry rather than stand in judgment at how they carry it?”

– Greg Boyle              

Describe your most meaningful experience so far:

My most meaningful experience so far would be observing a parent-child at home interview. I was able to see first hand the interview process that occurs when a parent wants to enroll a child into our program. It was humbling to see things from a different perspective. My favorite part was listening to the parent speak and the child speak separately. I want to work with adolescents in my future career so this experience was very fulfilling.
